R E A L festival fashion

Hello there! I’m currently in planning mode, I’m going to Glastonbury in just over a week and I’m so bloody excited. There’s a lot to get done before going (the joys of being self-employed) and SO many packing woes. I love festivals, they’re the highlight of my year. I love the atmosphere, the people, the…

Manchester, the greatest city.

I woke up this morning to my boyfriend telling me the horrific news of last nights explosion. It was terrifying I sat up confused and ran to get my phone from the other room. As I did I looked outside our patio doors, to the city I love – it looked exactly the same as…

A beginners guide to shopping responsibly.

  I’m someone who loves to shop and buy into exciting new trends. I’m someone who cares deeply about ethical issues in the fashion supply change, someone who believes we hugely need to revolutionise the industry and dramatically change our shopping habits.  I’m someone on a low budget. These three elements of my life are in…

By the time I’m 25…

For some reason I’ve always thought of 25 as an important year, the year I set a lot of my goals to. So I thought I’d make a realistic list of 25 things I want to have achieved by that year.

Good riddance, long distance!

Celebration! Tomorrow me and James finally move back to Manchester and into our first home together. I am beyond excited. I can’t wait to jazz up the decor, have all my friends over, create my own little desk space and use my bloody slow cooker. (I plan to age twenty years in the next few…

My Simple New Year’s Goal.

Happy New Year everyone. I’m fully aware you’ll be sick to death of other peoples resolutions and you’re probably swiping this post away already, but WAIT stick with me! I’ve always hated resolutions. I try and make changes every year and nearly always fail, mainly because I take on too much at once. This year,…

What I’m currently loving!

    So I know the done thing for these here bloggers is to do monthly faves, but I shan’t be doing that. I’m too out there, I throw caution to the wind and do what the fudge I like. One day maybe I’ll be together enough to do this as a monthly feature. However…

Feeding Time at the Zoo

  Okay so to give this post some context you’re gonna need some background. I’m one of 10, I have 6 brothers and 3 sisters. Mad I know, believe me in my 22 years I’ve answered every question people have on the topic! I’ve recently moved back home and my ‘house job’ is to do…

Music round up: October

I’ve been toying with the idea of writing about music for a while now. In the last two years I’ve caught the live music bug, it’s such a highlight of my month to spend time getting to know and seeing new music. This month has been very busy for me, with lots of different gigs,…

Style and Ownership

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about creativity. Especially in terms of personal style. When you have an original style and work hard to make it your own, do you own it? Okay I realise that might not have been the the easiest intro to follow. Here’s an example! I love statement boots. My best…

Self-care and body confidence.

  Last week the brilliant Iskra Lawrence launched a petition on change.org calling for children to receive self-care lessons in school. It’s really got me thinking,  how could these classes help future generations? And would it have helped my own self-care issues? For as long as I can remember I’ve worried about my body shape. It’s a part…

Culture, bodies of water and a good egg.

Hello all, It’s been a while. I’ve had the most hectic amazing summer of my life. I’ve been travelling around and starting my amazing new job.  I’ve got some new plans and post ideas, which I can’t wait to start sharing with you. I’d LOVE to hear feedback from you, what posts you like and…
